Vessel Profile
Type JumpShip
Class Merchant

The Celeste was a Merchant-class JumpShip.


In 3095 the Celeste was operating under the aegis of the Republic of the Sphere, commanded by Captain Leonardo Jackson. It was tasked with delivering a Mule-class DropShip (the E.F. Marie) and possibly another cargo or 'Mech carrier DropShip with weapons destined to be decommissioned to a Republic bone yard on Rigil Kentarus when it vanished in a misjump.[1]


  • The Celeste is among the canonical items featured in the 2014 Halloween special product Empires Aflame. The focus of that product was an (expressly non-canonical) alternate universe; the misjump of the Celeste served as the entry point for the players into that other universe. Canonically, the Celeste vanished and its fate remains unknown.[2]
